Oh hi there

coloured crates

Welcome to the new look Knightsbridge Penthouse website and blog.

There’s been plenty of changes during 2012 here at Knighty including refurbishments, service, and of course faces behind the bar.

Earlier this year we treated the interior to a fresh coat of paint and some quirky additions to the walls; some permanent like the feature walls in the toilets and others continuously changing like the additions associated with the Wobble Art evenings.

Once again, we endeavoured to promote ourselves as a premier cocktail establishment of Canberra with new seasonal additions to the menus. The autumn and winter lists were eclectic and delicious, and our spring launch in early September went down a treat.

We welcomed Peter Thomson’s promotion to bar manager, the addition of Canberra local Julius Yates to the bar, and the adoption of some Parlour Wine Room crew also.

Over the last little while we have been giving the outdoor courtyard some much needed TLC, and we hope that you will enjoy basking out there as the days get longer and warmer.

We will be contributing regularly to this blog, and we’d like to remind you that we are also on Facebook and Twitter.

Love

Minky and the Knighty Crew.
